<p>The Chairman of Nigeria National League (NNL), Chidi Okenwa, has restated the commitment of the
league body to zero tolerance for corruption and bad officiating in the
2017/2018 Bet9ja NNL season.</p><br><p>Okenwa made the submission on the sidelines of the Bet9ja
NNL Annual Congress and Draws held at the Guest House, National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Person (NAPTIP), Surulere, Lagos.</p><br><p>The chairman said
that the league body would come hard on those planning to
bring the game to disrepute and go against the rules by circumventing to win at all cost.</p><br><p>"In terms of officiating, the President of Nigeria Referee Association (NRA), Tade Williams and the Chairman of the Football Committee have both given their words.</p><br><p>"We have said that no referee, no matter how highly placed will be spared because the rules permit NRA
to caution any erring referee; they have a code of conduct.</p><br><p>"The rules are water-tight and of course, I want to tell anyone that cares to listen that I belong to the old school of thought in assessing referees.</p><br><p>"Those match officials don’t act on their own, they have
connivers that instigate their actions, we have those that induce them and they are the club officials,’’
he said.</p><br><p>Okenwa said that referees inducement and corruption in the league
was a battle to be won if the league would be taken seriously
as one of the important leagues in the country.</p><br><p>"In the event of inducement, I know that there is no referee that will go to any club official to demand for money to favour them. Those club officials are the ones behind it all.</p><br><p>"I will say that
the club officials are the guilty party in this case and it has to stop.<img src="" style="max-width:430px;float:left;padding:10px 10px 10px 0px;border:0px;"> Bribe taking involves
